Apple cancels planned Irish data center after repeated delays

Apple Inc. will no longer build its planned €850 million data center in Ireland after regulatory approvals have stalled the project for three years, Reuters reported, citing an Apple statement.

The planned facility, which will be built in the town of Athenry, has met opposition from locals. Two individuals have filed a case with the Irish High Court, and later with the Supreme Court to block the construction of the data center. The High Court dismissed the case in October 2017.

Apple, however will continue to expand its European hub in County Cork, where it currently has over 6,000 employees.

Meanwhile, Ireland is en route to amending its planning laws to expedite the construction of data centers, which will be classified strategic infrastructure. “There is no disputing that Apple’s decision is very disappointing, particularly for Athenry and the West of Ireland,” according to Heather Humphreys, Irish minister for business and enterprise.
